Interactive Scores – Ensemble Maze & Yuri Shimaoka

This concert has already taken place. Click here for our current concert programme.

The MAZE Ensemble from Amsterdam plays four new works which use interactive scores and new media. Such as an interactive game in a virtual desert created by Emile Frankel, and a score based on a colourful, virtual 3D cube by João Ceitil. Pieces that give the relationship between composer and performer a totally new interpretation.

In ironic erratic eroticby Gaudeamus Award 2019 nominee Scott Rubin, the ensemble and dancer Yuri Shimaoka enter into dialogue by means of motion sensors. Rebekah Wilson translates a day in the life of a computer programme into music.

It’s a piece of cake for MAZE, which focuses on playing music that experiments with form, with new methods of listening and experimental approaches to the score. Member of the jury for the Gaudeamus Award 2019 Yannis Kyriakides is one of the founding members of MAZE.
